Crimean War: A Reappraisal
Philip Warner (au)
It would seem that the Crimean War was the most mismanaged, brutal & futile campaign that have ever been fought. It is the classic model of mil. & med. blundering. Mil. inefficiency was slightly redeemed by the the ill-fated heroism of the Charge of the Light Brigade, & med. chaos made acceptable by Florence Nightingale’s achievements. The facts that the Allies won this war against extremely tough opponents, that at the end of it the British Army had reached a high pitch of efficiency, & that the campaign was one of extreme difficulty are often glossed over. In this reappraisal Warner defines the army’s achievements & setbacks, the medical & logistical misfortunes, & the sheer horror of the war, in the context of the time & place. B&W illus.
